Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume to your skin. Many of the visible signs of aging occur because of volume loss. 

As you get older, your skin’s production of collagen slows down. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength, thickness, and resilience. The layer of subcutaneous fat under your skin also declines with age.

These age-related changes cause your skin to loosen and sag, leading to lines, wrinkles, and creases. Dermal fillers serve as a replacement for this volume loss, restoring your youthful look. 

What can dermal fillers do?

Dermal fillers are best known for softening facial lines and wrinkles. But these cosmetic injections do more than fill in wrinkles. Some of the things dermal fillers do include:

  • Smoothing lines around the mouth and nose
  • Enhancing sunken cheeks and temples
  • Volumizing thin lips
  • Filling in depressed acne scars
  • Improving facial symmetry

If you’re looking for a subtle way to enhance your natural beauty, schedule a consultation at Central Utah Dermatology. The team uses dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in your skin.

What can I expect during treatment with dermal fillers?

The team at Central Utah Dermatology takes an individualized approach to care. They customize your dermal filler treatment plan based on your beauty concerns and goals and review the details at your consultation.

While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider cleans your skin with an antiseptic agent and applies a numbing lotion. Then, they inject small amounts of the dermal filler into your skin, massaging it into place. They repeat these steps until they get the right look.

Dermal filler injections take about an hour. You can expect some swelling and redness at the site of the injection, but these side effects subside within a few hours.

You can resume most of your usual activities after your dermal filler treatment. However, the team asks that you not engage in any strenuous physical activity for a day or two to reduce risk of bruising.

How long do dermal fillers last?

How long your dermal fillers last depends on the type of filler used. However, most fillers last six months or longer*. The team at Central Utah Dermatology recommends returning to the office to repeat your injections as needed.
